Lately I have been feeling cluttered. My house feels cluttered, my mind feels cluttered. Sometimes I wonder what it would be like to live without so many material possessions. Would it be freeing? Or would I miss the conveniences of life and just wish for more? Mmm. Perhaps it is partly the onset of spring after a very long, cold, gloomy winter, whatever it is I have been feeling the need to de-clutter my life a little and be happy with what I already have. I am slowly working my way through the house and bagging up, throwing out, taking to the op-shop those items I have not used in a long while. Starting to feel more at ease already. As far as my quilting goes, I have decided I really need to work on some of the UFO's I have had sitting around for some time now. I thought if I showed some of those UFO's here on my blog, perhaps it will encourage me to stop taking on new projects and get some of these older ones finished.
One of my newer UFO's is the gorgeous Sue Ross BOM. I have made up 5 of the 9 blocks, so really just need to spend a few days getting these last blocks done. I noticed that Kathy at Material Obsession is now offering a second round of this BOM, I must get mine finished before the second group does!!!
Bumble Beans ran a Waverunner quilt along, I loved making this quilt top, now it needs a finish!
Being realistic, I know I will not get these quilts finished in the next few weeks, however I would like to have at least a few of them completed by Christmas. Getting some finishes achieved will help with my de-cluttering, and I know I will feel happy to see them done. I will keep working on a simpler life, wish me luck! xo
